If you could ask Don one question.


Recommended Posts

What one attraction would he like to bring back if he could.

Flying Eagles. It was a favorite of mine going back to when it was at Coney Island. I have a lot of memories riding that ride with my parents, brother and sister when I was growing up. It was so much fun!

Well, we could just get another Flying Eagles for next year like Michigan's Adventure. :)

My question would be: "On average, how many times do you roll your eyes a day while reading the KI Central forum?"

No, because I don't have that kind of dough and my backyard isn't big enough to build a ride like that.

Because I chose not to.

Don, how does one keep offical track of the number of rides? Does the park ever let anyone try to break any all time rides?

How awesome would a fund raiser be where you pay a certain amount of money to just ride beast/racer/Diamondback all day. The money would be used for cancer research, etc...

Are you being sarcastic, or have you not seen posts, and videos about Coasting for Kids?

Because he's Don, he doesn't have to!

That's like saying the president doesn't have to obey laws.

Does it say in the TOS that we have to use multi quote? :mellow:

EDIT: Just did a search of TOS. I see nowhere where is says multi quotes must be used.

No laws have been broken, and we should be happy he is even interacting with us!

But it does say something about spamming the forums, double posting, and using the edit function. I don't want to sound as if I'm saying "DON IS SPAMMING THE FORUMS!!!!!!!!!" , because he's not. I just asked a question. After all, that is the intent of this thread. :)

Don, why did you decide to head into Public Relations as opposed to other professions?

Because my attempt to play professional baseball or hockey ended in a contract dispute. I wanted a contract but no team in either sport was willing to offer one.

After realizing I wasn't going to play professionally, I wanted to work in professional sports (baseball, hockey, football) or the amusement/theme park industry and the things I was good at or had an aptitude for made PR/media relations a natural fit.

How strange does it look in the park without SoB? Right now I really can't imagine!

I remember the ride not being there for most of the park's history from 1972-1999, so for me it's not as strange without it as it might be for others.

Don, do you have any funny or interesting stories of Reds players at Kings Island that you could share?

In 1982, I was working Reds games at Riverfront Stadium and one of the players, Cesar Cedeno, took himself out of the game in the fourth inning, claiming to be sick. I arrived at the park that evening around 6:00pm and got in line for The Racer and right in front of me is Cedeno with a couple of his friends. It was a Saturday night and the wait time was about 45 minutes, so I was able to chat with him a bit and learned that he liked amusement parks and roller coasters. When I asked him about leaving the game because he was sick, he said he was sick. Sick of new Reds manager Russ Nixon, who had taken over for John McNamara a few weeks earlier.
